Floodlights > Buddha - The jam out of Floodlights is great from the beginning, and it moves flawlessly into the 2002 NYE Jam. This is kinda cool, but as usual I would prefer that this was 5 minutes of a jam rather than a composed jam. They wind up back in real improv again and it turns into a catchy little house jam that kinda sounds like it could have come out of Resurrection. This actually turns into a really pretty jam that works very well without getting too old too quickly.
Stone > Liquid Lazer - Both are standard.
Crystal - Standard
Story - Sammy really pushes the jam here, along with Magner. Barber does a great job of playing some really melodic licks, but at times he gets a little aimless/wanky. Overall I like this jam but it's really just standard-good Biscuits. Nothing mindblowing.
ItHotMK - Standard
GiG > Jigsaw > Gig - The GiG starts out with a Magner-led house jam. For the first few minutes, they're pretty aimless, with Barber trying a variety of riffs out. At about 8:26, Barber and Brownstein drop out and it's just Magner and Sammy. Magner comes up with an awesome riff, but unfortunately Barber doesn't really have anything interesting to add to the conversation for a little bit. By about the 10 minute mark, they've got something really cool going with Magner and Brownstein really driving the jam. The segue into Jigsaw is smooth, and the first Jigsaw jam has lots of interesting work from Sammy. They do a pretty good job of building this jam up to craziness very quickly, but the jam itself is rather forgettable. Lots of flubs from Barbles in the middle portion of Jigsaw. The 2nd jam has this kind of obnoxious rhythm to start, but then they wind up in a house jam. Around the 14 minute mark Sammy drops the snare to half time and they wind up in this spacey jam with Barber 2 measure chords. A little too much Brownstein slap in here for my tastes. I really like the chord progression that the band gets in and is locked into around the 18 minute mark, but they don't seem to take it anywhere for a while, and ultimately drop it for the major key build back into GIG. Unfortunate.
Radiator - Meh.
Magellan > Fiddler (><) > Magellan > Stir it Up > Magellan - This sequence appears on one of the TFRB's, just in case you're wondering. Magellan starts off this sequence, and they do a great job of stretching the song out. The 1st jam is the spacious, tom-heavy, atmospheric jamming you expect in Magellan, and the second is this swing-driven jam that turns into a trip-hop jam with Magner playing some really cool ascending/descending melodies. Magner winds up on this square wave that sounds a little like a xylophone, and the whole jam is just really cool. The build into the Fiddler peak is PHENOMENAL. Very well done, Barber. The jam back into Magellan is swell as is the little Stir it Up jam. Great segment.
Rock Candy - Rock Candy starts out with a lot of energy, and Barber/Magner have great interplay here. Really cool jam overall. If you're looking for good 2003 trance Biscuits, this is a very very good jam. This is one of the best Rock Candies of all time.
Overall, 4-stars. The only thing that you really will want to listen to over and over again is the Magellan > Fiddler > Magellan and the Rock Candy, but the Floodlight and 1st GIG jams are both pretty decent too.
